Iowa City board to rule on Kinnick Stadium-inspired house

Posted: Updated:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa City Board of Adjustment is scheduled to decide Wednesday whether to let a couple build a 7,500-square-foot home designed to resemble Kinnick Stadium.

A group called the Neighbors of Manville Heights Association and property owners in the area are appealing the city's June issuance of a building permit to Reed and Sandy Carlson. The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (http://icp-c.com/2cNkaJ8 ) that the opponents cited the home's size, the potential for big parties, as well as concerns about drainage, fire safety and erosion.

The board has the final say over matters of zoning, variances and permits, unless someone takes the board to court over its decision.
